In the Valve store, Steam, we can find this other title called Stable Orbit. This game has Linux support and the reviews are mostly very positive, with few negative reviews. It seems that it is a pretty good simulator and for lovers of space and aerospace engineering it will be a good piece to have among their bedside video games. The graphics are more than decent and with it we can build our own space station in orbit. Instead it seems that it does not have tutorials and that makes it difficult for people to learn.
The description of the video game says it all, as it says that it is a simulator in which we can design, build and control our own Spacial station. All command and control of the space mission will rest in your hands, therefore you must meticulously plan the project and supervise it so that everything goes well and keep the crew safe from evils. The resources will not be infinite far from it, but we will have to manage well the scarce resources available so that the station and the astronauts survive disasters and continue with their research projects.
Stable Orbit feel your story in the year 2034, when a space coalition has been established in which all nations collaborate. Collaboration or has precedents in humanity to conquer space, since space is a dangerous place. The crew of the space station that you have created can suffer numerous incidents, such as suffocation due to lack of oxygen, overdose of solar radiation, etc., if we do not take good care and manage the oxygen reserves or the thin walls of the space modules ...
Unlike many simulators that use a view from above where we can see how we build everything from a higher perspective, in Stable Orbit they have preferred to contribute greater realism with a vision that we can modify and have a view of planet Earth and our artificial satellite from where we can control everything. Also, it seems that its developers plan to implement more improvements and new content.
